Hey All, Thought this might be interesting to the portrait people here. My wife has a cousin who has a 2 yr old daughter. During the summer, I told her that if she wants some shots done to give me a call. She told me that she already has a photographer. I said no problem. I get a call Tues, and she saw some of my work at a sister in laws house. She tells me she wants me to do some shots and to give her a price. So I start checking around our area to see what is being charged, then I talk to my wife about it. Her thinking is that since I'm still building up my portfolio and her daughter is cute, I should just charge for what ever prints she wants. That was my thinking originally since it is family. So I call her and say $6 for 8X10, $4 for 5X7 etc. She says thats not right. I said don't worry about it, just don't go telling friends that is my price. She asks what I think she spent on portraits for her daughter's 18 mon pics. I guessed $400, she says $850. So now I'm rethinking my sitting fee and print prices. This photographer, although he advertises himself as Master of Photography, is good, not great, nothing groundbreaking. FYI Most of the photographers are charging $400 to $600 for sessions and print credits. These numbers are blowing me away. I was thinking I would be happy to be making $250 a session including prints. Any thoughts on prices?
